BONESBOOK was published under the name “A Shady Dog Production.” David “Bones” Hebert was murdered by an officer of the Cincinnati Police Department. A cloud of suspicion and injustice still surround this case. We even got Cheetah Chrome from The Dead Boys to give us permission to use lyrics from “Sonic Reducer” as that was one of Bones favorite songs. This book is a memorial to the life of David “Bones” Hebert and Shady was the name of his beloved dog.

The recently formed Roots/Americana/AltCountry duo Terminal Union has recorded a song inspired by Bones and the sketchy circumstances surrounding the shooting.
While Faul had never met Bones, Mathieu (a local music vet who recently relocated back to Cincinnati after some time in Nashville) had seen him perform when he was in bands during the ’90s and had a few drinks with him in the weeks leading up to his death. Mathieu was also living in Northside within a couple hundred feet of where the shooting occurred in early April.
Faul says Mathieu woke up amidst the early morning commotion and looked down as paramedics drove up, checked the body and left in less than a minute.
Mathieu knew someone had died and the next morning he saw the reports that it was a police shooting. Faul says between that and the media retrospectives about the 10th anniversary of the police shooting of Timothy Thomas that sparked widespread unrest in Cincinnati had pushed Mathieu to begin writing a verse for a song. For more material and perspective, Mathieu attended the initial police press conference about the shooting. That’s when he found out it was Bones who had been killed.
Friends of Bones (FOB) is an organization that was formed in response to the fatal police shooting of our dear friend David “Bones” Hebert. Our goal is to support those involved directly in the case, to raise awareness about police violence in our community, and to bring about policy change in police procedures, training, and equipment, while encouraging responsible city leadership.
This website was created to provide a library of information and the latest updates released to the public in this investigation. There are links to background information on David Hebert and Sgt. Andrew Mitchell, as well as photos, video, events, media stories and press release information.
